Termie With ZedGraph

Well I faced new problem for plotting data captured from serial port. It is possible to use Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice Calc but it is too conventional. So, I tried to find an opensource serial port terminal and finally I got this : Termie by David McClurg.

An abstract of  the program can be seen in the following quote :

Termie opens a serial port and logs data received to a window. It is useful for embedded software development. It can also send data so it is actually a RS232 terminal with a chat-like interface.

An embedded system is a special-purpose computer such as a Wii, MP3 player, or cell phone. To develop for such a system, you need a development “kit” which allows you to download software and debug. Communication between your PC and the embedded system is often a serial cable (RS-232).

So I got another tool : ZedGraph for generating graph under .NET platform and I add some codes to plot the data from serial port. Currently, I lost the program’s screenshot but if some of you use this software and find it good you may send me the screenshot.

Requirement :

Windows(tm) with .NET Framework 2.0
